|Annual consumer catalog from 1979, with 24 pages and over 100 color photo's. Lionel first MPC Killer catalog. Finally we see the return of Lionel's dual motor FM trainmaster in two roadnames(Virginian and Southern Pacific), and the Lionel classic GG-1 in Penn Central black. Other new items included the Famous American Railroad Series #1 Santa Fe Frt. set, PRR green F-3 AA with five matching aluminum cars, N.H. F-3 AA, Limited Edition Quaker City Limited U36B set, CP Great Plains Express GP-9 set, Tootie Roll tank car, once again alot of great new rolling stock and rare billboard reefers(Nabisco, Gerber, Lite Beer), and lots more. An interesting note was that 1977 saw Lionel answer a special demand by collectors and reintroduce the American Flyer line with three piece's of rolling stock(Gulf tank car, Chessie hopper, and S.F. boxcar), and lots more. Shown on the cover, but sold as uncataloged was the S.P. Limited U36B set(had the rare 9320 Fort Knox Mint car). We also saw some popular repeats; Jersey Central 4-6-4 steamer and cars, WARR General and cars, Conrail rectfier, Erie Lackawanna GP-9, S.F.
